Limited edition to celebrate the Australian Goverment's cash bonus to a fair portion of the population - in order to stimulate the economy.

Had a couple of pints tonight. Very nice. Seems to be very heavy in the flavour hops, without the powerful bitterness expected from an American IPA, and not too much in the way of hop aroma. Cascade all the way here - LC are also celebrating the arrival of a new shipment of US cascades. Also noticed the typical LC yeast profile, which sets it apart.

Happy to see another seasonal from LC - and it was chocas tonight, showing it can fill up even on a Wednesday.

A - Quite a clear medium golden colour. Pours with a couple of centimetres of white fluffy head with fairly good retention.
S - Big fresh, floral and resiny hop aroma. Very little in the way of malt aroma.
T - Very slight sweet maltiness with a fresh floral and and vauge grassy hoppiness.
T - Thin bodied with a slightly sticky resinous touch. Low to medium carbonation.
D - Certainly is drinkable if you like hop forward beers. A few pots without a problem. A bit more maltiness wouldn't hurt though.
